I’ve come to appreciate the irony of Metatron’s interest in my writing career.

He’s known as God’s scribe, something I was not aware of until 2016 while writing Bishop Pair:  Book 2 in the Metatron’s Army series.

Turns out he’s passionate about sci-fi.

And my making it a priority.

Metatron’s Army

Undoubtedly, the biggest impact was his role in the Metatron’s Army Series.

Which he began collaborating with me on in 10th grade.

Even before the series was finished, however, he was on to the next.

Dragon Core

Another story he and I worked on when I was in 10th grade, I actually wrote 3 complete novels under this umbrella in my early 20s.

Later jettisoned.


I hadn’t even started on Redemption, 3rd in the Dragon Core series before he was reminding me of yet another sci-fi project he talked to me about.

In 10th grade.

Metatron as a Plot Device

It was while working on this other series my collaborative efforts with this enigmatic being took a twist.


I was in the shower one morning when I heard a deep voice say, “Hello.”

I shrieked.

I looked up to see the Archangel standing on the other side of the shower glass door.

To say I was surprised would be a vast understatement.

After a moment of eye contact, he disappeared.

This incident is the inspiration for a scene in Adrift.

Fiction isn’t the only area in which we work together.  

As I’ve written in After Here: The Celestial Plane and What Happens When We Die and Lessons From the Edge: An Author’s Guide to Metatron’s Army, I was given information – by Metatron -both during and after the NDE.  He continues to guide me in understanding what I saw and experienced.

And how to solve various scientific equations he presented.

Even the nonfiction influences the plot.

Dragon Core

As I was wrapping up the Metatron’s Army series it became evident we needed to address the role of time in miscommunication.  Specifically, that there is a time lag between when I sent information and when it was received.

I explained my side of the story.

“By the time you respond to the request, so much time has passed I either no longer need or want whatever it is.”

He explained his side.

He showed me a large square cube, milky white/pearlescent in color, with what seemed like a movie playing on one side.  (The movie was my life). He pointed to a location to the left that indicated when he received the request.  He then explained that after getting the request he looked to the future – illustrated further to the right – and, after evaluating a number of variables, chose the best next action on the way to fulfilment.

He explained the problem was due to the fact time is distance and until and unless I found a way to shorten it, we would be dealing with this challenge.

He then gave me a rather in-depth lesson – including visuals – on the theory of relativity and demanded I find a way to shorten the gap.

I did not long after thanks to solving one of of the differential equations given to me during the NDE.

I used this as a plot device in The Isle of Future Past, 4th in the Dragon Core series.

The nature of that equation will be the subject of a future post.
